I have moved! The blog is now at http://lawdork.net!
I have returned to the blogosphere after more than two years of experience in state government — working on the transition and then in the office of former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann and then for former Attorney General Nancy Rogers. While in the office, I focused on multistate efforts — including amici curiae briefs, pre-litigation investigations and federal legislative and agency communications — and all aspects of securities fraud and shareholder derivative litigation. I also worked closely with our communications, legislative and public affairs staffs to ensure proper promotion of legal and policy initiatives of the Office. I left the office in December 2008, allowing Attorney General Rich Cordray to assemble his team and begin his own time in what is one of the best jobs and best offices in public service.
Prior to serving in the Attorney General’s Office, I was an associate for more than a year at a mid-sized law firm based in Columbus, where I focused primarily on government-related litigation. I graduated in 2005 from the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, where I served as Editor in Chief of the Ohio State Law Journal and a research assistant for several professors. While in law school, and until beginning my time in the Attorney General’s Office, I blogged on legal, political and journalism issues at Law Dork, which received recognition as the Best Law Blog in the 2005 Weblog Awards and a Finalist for the Best LGBT Blog in the 2004 Weblog Awards.
Before law school, I was the editorial writer at the Tribune Chronicle in Warren, Ohio. Earlier, I had spent time during my undergraduate education in Washington, D.C., interning or volunteering at differing times for the White House, the U.S. Senate and a nonprofit advocacy organization.
